Nude Lip Colors for WOC? Try Mented Cosmetics

By Cici @cici_heranpark

There is a hole in the Beauty Industry for Brown and Deeper toned skin that is slowly but surely being filled.  I remember talking about this with an Aunt.  We talked about how the current standard “Nude” lipsticks cater to people with lighter complexions.  The baby pinks and light brownish beige colors are not as nude as they should appear when worn by women with darker skin tones.

I teamed up with Mented Cosmetics to bring you a “Nude Series!” I created six looks to go with all six nude lipsticks in the Capsule Collection.  Now usually, I do not reach for creamy matte shade lipsticks but these definitely changed how I felt about creamier formulas in a lipstick.  I prefer a more matte formula when wanting to wear a solid color but these are moisturizing and pigmented enough for me to make them my Go-To nudes. They look very natural and compliment me very well.

These lipsticks look great with every look I did.  Of course the darker shades stand out against my skin tone because I am a medium tan complexion. The lighter shades are very nude and are all I need on natural/neutral days.  What I love the most about the Capsule Collection is that it comes with a mixture of medium and dark browns with both cool and warm shades.

Each look below showcases each shade on my complexion.

Bridal Looks: A Twist on the Ordinary

Bridal Looks: A Twist on the Ordinary

It is that time of year again: Wedding Season!

With a wedding to have and loved ones to attend, a staple look that is special, yet still the best representation of you is a must. Here are our current favorite looks we have seen to give you some inspiration.

Look One: Soft & Glowy

I think we can all agree that Meghan Markle’s makeup for her royal wedding was the epitome of perfecting the no-makeup makeup look.

Through light foundation, blush, mascara, brows, and the perfect nude lip her look captivated not just brides to be but the attention of millions! Her makeup artist Daniel Martin described her look as timeless, effortless, and chic with a focus on her eyes.

Watch our Bridal Beauty: Two Looks | Women of Color to learn how to create your own Soft and Glowy Look or if you want to take it up a notch go Glam and Glowy.

Look Two: Bold & Gold

This look is meant to make you shine! The gold will be remembered for making your eyes pop.


To recreate this look, grab your Everyday Eyeshadow Palette and have your blending and shadow brushes ready,

  1. To start, begin by blending a light layer of Queen Sugar on your crease. Begin to deepen the crease with Brown Out, focusing on the outer “v” of the eye.
  2. Now if you want sharp definition, begin to make a cut crease (carving out your lid) with concealer. If you are wanting a softer look, you can skip this step.
  3. Blend the crease out and pack First Date in the inner corner and first third of your eye. For an added pop of shine, apply some under the brow bone too.
  4. To finish off the eye, blend out any hard edges with your blending brush. Then finish of with applying eyeliner, lashes, and mascara!
  5. Finish off the look with your perfect nude (Peach Please is being worn in the image above) and Glow for Grown Ups in the shade Glow Out for a soft highlight.

Quick Tip! Our Peach Please lipstick is the perfect shade for a light cream blush! Dot on the apples of your cheeks and blend for a natural flush.
